Lately I’ve been doing pilates and let me tell you, it feels great! It’s the perfect exercise to stretch your muscles, relax and strengthen your body. If you’re looking for a new hobby/excercise, I highly recommend trying it!

Same here! :)

Agree, I love to mix pilates with yoga.

Natalie Portman’s Black Swan Workout

Natalie Portman Ballet Workout: Abs Exercise
For a ballerina, the center of balance is everything, Bowers says. That’s why ballet abs exercises serve a dual purpose: They flatten your stomach while strengthening your abdominal muscles—the foundation of your balance.

How to do it: Lay on your back with the arms open wide in second position, knees slightly bent. Pull your stomach in as you lift your upper body, bringing your arms overhead to first position (creating a circular frame around your head). Focus on keeping the stomach pulled in as you lower and lift again. Repeat 30 times.

And The Actual Secrets to a Lean and Toned Body in 30 Minutes a Day - Part 2

I agree in most part with these 2 posts. I found that I gained more in strength and balance working out daily 10, 20 or 30 min (depending of the day) than doing 1h work out 3-4 times a week. Pilates and yoga are great to have a lean and toned body (I’m referring to a nicely shaped body not a skinny mega muscular one). The best of course is to do what you love.
